Kesha Loses Appeal Against Sony – A New York state judge has reportedly thrown out Kesha’s appeal in her fight against music label Sony and producer Dr. Luke.
Kesha had tried to get a court to annul her contract with Sony on the grounds that producer Dr. Luke had allegedly raped her, but according to TMZ, the judge was having none of it.
Kesha had rejected an offer from Sony to work with other producers aside Dr. Luke, a move which the judge had deemed unreasonable.
Kesha’s claims of a hate crime were also thrown out. The judge added: “Although [Luke’s] alleged actions were directed to Kesha, who is female, [her claims] do no allege that [Luke] harbored animus toward women or was motivated by gender animus when he allegedly behaved violently toward Kesha.”
